After you've grown and nourished your baby, allow your placenta to continue to take care of you and encourage a smooth transition between pregnancy and postpartum. Placenta capsules may help birthing people balance hormones following birth, decrease their bleeding, decrease their risk for postpartum mood disorders, increase their energy in the early days of parenthood and promote healthy breastmilk production.
We provide all placenta services from the convenience and safety of your own home. Growing research is indicating the value and importance of protecting the microbiome of both the parent and child. By offering placenta services from your own kitchen, you can be sure this important and special organ is handled with the utmost care and safety standards in mind, and you have the option to watch and observe as much (or as little) of the process as you'd like.
Additionally, our Placenta Specialists are also trained, experienced doulas who can help answer any recovery or newborn care/feeding questions you may have at that time; and, we'll always leave your kitchen cleaner than when we arrived.
All services include one in-person consultation to talk through the options and decide if placenta encapsulation is a good fit for your postpartum goals. Plus, we'll provide a comprehensive guide and supplies for discreet transport and safe storage of your placenta after birth. All encapsulation packages also include a complimentary placenta print and 4 ounces of placenta tincture (if requested).
Basic Heated (TCMi) Method Encapsulation ($325): This method incorporates inspiration from the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCMi) method of gently heating and steaming your placenta with fresh ginger, peppers and lemon prior to dehydration, which promotes gentle healing and warming from within. This gentle option is especially great for people anticipating any postpartum mood disorders or who have a history of depression and/or anxiety. Out of an abundance of caution, we do not offer Raw Method Encapsulation or Placenta Smoothies.
Placenta Print ($50, if not encapsulating): Long after your capsules have been consumed, a beautiful placenta print provides a way to remember all that this powerful organ did for you and your newborn. Using food-safe dye or blood alone, a print of your placenta is made on watercolor paper prior to encapsulation.
Placenta Tincture ($50, if not encapsulating): This option, which has an indefinite shelf life, if stored in a cool, dark place, allows you to enjoy the hormone-stabilizing benefits of your placenta well beyond your capsules and is especially helpful when experiencing your first postpartum menstrual cycle or early menopausal symptoms. A few drops under your tongue, or mixed into a beverage, will provide you with the benefits of your placenta for years to come.
Our expertly trained Placenta Specialists uphold the highest standards for cleanliness, professionalism, and sanitation. All of our Placenta Specialists are certified in infection and blood-borne pathogen controls and safe food-handling standards. You are always invited to observe and ask questions as your placenta is processed!
